Eligible students are provided an annual scholarship of NT$100,000 for up to two years.

HR Highlights

Vietnamese Talent Shows High Growth Potential, Boosting Business Competitiveness

We highlight Vietnam’s talent status with key indicators in the QS World University Rankings and the INSEAD Global Talent Competitiveness Index.

(1) QS World University Rankings

In the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Ranking 2024, Vietnam has 4 of the world’s top 1,000 universities, including Duy Tan University (DTU), Ton Duc Thang University (TDTU), Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City (VNUHCM), and Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU). The total undergraduate enrollment is approximately 180,000 students and the total graduate enrollment is 16,000 students. DTU ranks 341st globally in Engineering and Technology (E&T), while TDTU, VNUHCM, and VNU rank between 301st-350th, 351st-400th, and 451st-500th in Electrical/Electronic Engineering.

 

(2) INSEAD Global Talent Competitiveness Index

In the 2023 INSEAD Global Talent Competitiveness Index covering 134 countries, Vietnam ranked 75th in talent competitiveness, with six major assessment categories as follows: “Grow”(55th), “Enable”(59th), “Vocational and Technical Skills”(71st), “Global Knowledge Skills”(71st), “Attract”(72nd), and “Retain”(98th).

Vietnam excels in the Grow category, for instance, the Performance in the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) in reading, math, and science (15th). In the Enable category, Vietnam provides excellent ICT infrastructure (13th). In the Global Knowledge Skills category, Vietnam's high-value exports (4th) contribute to building talents’ advanced skills.

 

To sum up, Vietnamese students perform well in PISA, and local higher education institutions are committed to nurturing talent in engineering fields. Additionally, Vietnam's overall salary levels are relatively competitive. More recently, with the restructuring of global supply chains, Vietnam has become one of the key potential countries for Taiwanese investment and talent acquisition.
